Beach Bliss

I've had a lovely afternoon creating a new scrapbook layout - this time the holiday photos are slightly more recent from 2014. I'm not scrapping my photos in order, just picking ones that fit the ideas I have.
I was inspired by several challenges for this layout - the colours, brush script and wood texture in the beautiful mood board over at Jotmagazine were my starting point,
June 2016 - Lauren copy
The sea theme at That's Crafty and lyrics from Mika's  'Staring at the Sun' (one of the songs at Scrap it with a song) led me to the photograph and Another Freaking Scrap challenge prompted the use of the word Wonderful.
I started with wood grain paper and added a wash of gesso, stamped some script and splattered some ink around. Once the background was dry, I layered up more patterned paper and some strips of washi tape.
The title is hand painted - my first attempt at this style, needs some work but I'm happy enough with it.  The flowers are stamped and painted and there's a couple of other stamped images layered in there too. Little dots of Nuvo Crystals add the finishing touches.
I have the week off work so am looking forward to some more scrapping time tomorrow.....Thanks for stopping by...Esther xx
